Talks Over Tea Therapy



Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA)

Meeting someone new is intimidating, coming into therapy can be even more intimidating. You might be fearful or not sure if therapy is for you. To help you figure out if therapy is for you, I provide a free 20 -30-minute meet and greet appointment to answer any questions about therapy so you can decide if therapy is for you. My personal goal is to be transparent about how I practice therapy. I realize that before psychotherapy existed, folks sat around and talked to each other for emotional support. I grew up in a community that processed all of life and its' events over tea. Tea helped us sit with difficult circumstances, loss, and uncomfortable conversations. It also was the time that we shared silly stories, felt connection and shared laughter. My hope is to help you connect or reconnect with individuals in your life that you can have "tea" conversations with. When you need some extra support, I am here for you as an unbiased, confidential and professional tea drinker.

My intention is to help identify what is most important to you or what you value. Then help you use these values as a compass for your life. There is a plethora of things that might prevent you from living the life that you want. It might be emotions, beliefs about yourself, stuck energy, past experiences and/or racing thoughts. I help individuals understand these emotions, beliefs, energies, past experiences and thoughts. I collaborate with clients using their expertise on their life and my expertise on the nature of emotions and thoughts to uncover what your emotions are trying to tell you, why they are coming up and ways to cope with or release them.
